The hero and guiding force of this epic fantasy is an insomniac young man who, unable to sleep, guides the reader through the narrow streets of Cairo -a city mysterious and full of deceit and trickery. He narrates a complex tangle of dreams and imaginings that describe an atmosphere which is constantly shifting between sumptuously learned orientalism, erotic adventure, and dry humor. The result is a thought-provoking Chinese puzzle box of sex, philosophy, and theology. Reminiscent of Jorge Luis Borges, Italo Calvino, and Umberto Eco, this cult classic is finally back in print in a US edition.
